This is my first time ever rating a map so i hope

Playability:
Well it wasn't very playable as your only objective was to destroy the Rebels...
Balance:
There wasn't very much in balance as when i played it, i could just have the TIES guard the AT-ATs and i could bust the base with just those AT-ATs...
Creativity:
I don't really think it was very creative, because you just
had to do a remake of the ESB...
Map Design:
There was only one road and a few mountains and most of the map was decked out with Carbon Rocks...

Overall, i think it's a scenario that probably would need a little more elbow grease and effort, but it's an okay map if you just want to wreck the Rebels like no tomorrow...

Not a whole lot to this one. It's a 'sequel' to the Battle of Hoth seen in the films. Really, it all boils down to selecting your mass of units, and rolling them over top of the enemy. There is little to no thought involved in it, and as a result, there's not much fun to be had.
==========

Balance: 2
While the enemy defenses are numerous, they are severely underpowered when compared to your forces - especially your numerous Assault Mechs. Most enemy infantry won't even be able to get a shot off before being downed by them.

The biggest threat to your units is enemy Airspeeders. However, there only seem to be a handful of them on the map, and you are given several Adv Fighters which swat them down effortlessly. No challenge at all.
==========

Creativity: 2
A new spin on Hoth that might have been a lot better had the author put some more work into the gameplay.
==========

Map Design: 2
The map mostly consists of flat snow with Carbonn Rocks railroading you to your objective. There are a few scattered mountain props, but nothing to make the map pleasing to look at or play on.
==========

Story/Instructions: 3
The author went through some effort to craft a unique story surrounding the events of the scenario. While it reads nicely, give or take a few errors, it fails to add anything to the gameplay itself.
==========

Additional Comments:
There are much better interpretations of Hoth available to SWGB.
